"The question is not what you
look at but what you see."

let's get to know each other

My name is Alyssa

Before I was married, my initials spelled “a.r.t.” and I always took that as a sign. When I was younger, I loved to draw, paint and create. Now, I’m able to continue that creativity into photographing you, editing your images or creating layouts for your wedding album.

I like to have fun and try not to take myself too seriously and hope you don’t either. I want you to know that I will deliver quality work and professional service when it comes to your photographs and experience.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography from California State University Long Beach in 2013.

It’s the best decision I have made. I am so happy to be able to use my art degree in a field that I am so passionate about while getting to meet new people and help tell their love stories.

There is nothing more special to me than being your photographer to document all of your amazing and beautiful milestones in life. I feel so lucky to be able to make new friends out of my clients. I can't wait to help tell your story.

Some of my favorite images...

My husband, Kyle and I have been married for almost 10 years and we have two beautiful girls. We met on a cruise traveling to the Mexican Riviera and it really was a moment straight from of a movie. We share a love for sushi, cartoons, tiki drinks and taking our boat to Saguaro Lake.

Getting married is just the beginning. It's not always a curated gallery of pretty images but those moments are what I will always remember looking back on my life.

Here is a little look into my life and love.

I love to travel!

If you're getting married outside of Arizona or the USA and want me to photograph your beautiful event, check out my travel wish list and let's connect! I'd love to discuss all the details with you and help with any planning. Let's put that passport to use!

Love Notes From My Clients

Kayla N.

Alyssa flew into Colorado to photograph our elopement. She stayed in a cabin on the mountainside with us for the weekend and was absolutely fabulous about going with the flow and providing guidance when needed for the big day. Our photos are amazing & she even documented bits of our weekend, including the dog! I will be traveling all the way to AZ to use her again.

Your wedding is all about you, your family and friends. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Laugh loudly. Kiss slowly. Hug tightly.

I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.
